  1. May be useful - https://www.fmtunerinfo.com/moddedtuners.html#KT-5020
  2. I have the WH-1000 XM2. I use them on trains, planes, when I'm hoovering, when I'm cooking, learning a language and when I'm gardening. I can't fault them except my wife sometimes get's irritated when I can't hear her and it's easier to burn food on the hob! Great earphones
  3. Thanks for this. I'm not looking to spend a great deal at the moment. I'm wondering how the Psvane (lower end) compare with EH Gold and what other valves in that price bracket are worth considering. Can anyone tell me what B+ voltage to expect with the SE300b amp? I have a valve pulling 90mA with grid at region neg 110V - adjuster maxed out.
  4. Any recommendations for best current vfm 300b for use in BP SE300b? I've been using EH 300b gold up to now.
  5. Very nice - 1000VA too according to t'internet. Just the ticket for the diy constructor. Would buy if I didn't already have a variac. You could try offering it on PFM diy section but I doubt it will gather dust.
  6. Has to be a Miele. Consider a < £300 machine. How much did it cost to make? Where were corners cut? Broken down washing machines are almost as much as PITA as a broken down car. Buying a bottom of the range Miele means fewer frills but the same excellent engineering and materials. Listen to it running - what's that - you can't hear it?
  7. I think Arthur's got a winner here. I have just found this Youtube video which is very informative. It also shows how the Vector drive is applied to a Linn. If I didn't already own a vectored PT1 I would be very interested.
  8. I've accurately lubricated parts on my RTR deck with a syringe. They come with a squared off 'needle'.
  9. Has nobody on here owned or listened to one of these?
  10. Could anyone relate their experience of SQ with the original Border Patrol preamplifier (control unit) - the one without a power switch on the front of the case. What valves did it use and what changes were made on later models. It's not easy finding info on t'internet for the early BP products.
  11. Unfortunately it appears Serge has moved on to pastures new and no longer or very infrequently visits here. I doubt a PM would be answered. Can anyone suggest tools for R2R calibration and alignment? Does anyone have any gear they no longer use?
  12. Having found a new way to spend money on hifi - by way of reel to reel ownership - I now need some test gear. Anyone got one of these - perhaps with the partnering unit ATU1?
  13. Before I buy new, I'd like to see if anyone has a pair of Mogami 3103/3104 made up or a length of unused cable. I have some scope for asymmetric cable lengths. Will need some 8M or preferably more in total. Will consider alternative types of Mogami.
  14. Thanks but I have found some stands now. Will close the advert.
